I’m just going to get straight to the point. If you don’t “get” The Real Housewives, you don’t get me. I’ve been a stan of the hit Bravo show ever since Vicky Gunvalson first pulled back the gate into the glittering world of Orange County society women back in 2006. Since then, I’ve watched every season from every franchise—from New York to Atlanta to Beverly Hills—and consider the leading women to be an instrumental part of my life (don’t judge). They’re who I gossip about on the regular, they’re the subjects of just about every meme I send, and they also happen to be a source of style inspiration.
Yes, I’ll admit a lot of the lewks over the years have been out there, but there have been just as many standout fashun moments as well. TBH, I could sit here and write paragraphs of my favorite women and their most iconic outfits, but I’ll spare you (for now). Instead, I decided to scroll through street style imagery of housewives like Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, and NeNe Leakes from the last few months to uncover their most noteworthy off-duty ensembles (aka looks not necessarily seen on the show) that could be worth testing out in our own rotations. Keep scrolling to see (and shop) the outfits in question. And don’t be surprised if you’re all of a sudden inspired to binge Housewives reruns when you’re done—I’m right there with you, girl.
